We provide the names of rescues only to help lost dogs get back home.  We cannot vouch for any rescue. We provide this list so that owners can contact rescues to alert them that their dog is missing in case the rescue takes in their dog or perhaps already has the missing dog.  Owners should check dogs up for adoption from rescues as part of their search.  Finders may want to contact a rescue to hold a pet and help with the search for the owner. Not all rescues take in "strays" and not all rescues will follow all necessary steps to find an owner so finders should be careful when considering this.  Our preference is that finders take a dog to the local shelter if they cannot hold and search for the owner because that is where the owner is most likely looking.
